Skopelitis joined FA Premier League club Portsmouth on 28 January 2005 from Egaleo FC for a fee of £1 million, as a replacement for Amady Faye, who had been sold to Newcastle United. However, it later transpired that the transfer deal was structured as a year's loan with an initial fee of around £300,000 with the remaining £700,000 being paid if the club desired to keep the player after this period.
Skopelitis made his debut for Pompey as a 73rd minute substitute for Ricardo Fuller in a 2-1 home win over Middlesbrough. Coincidentally, he had already faced Middlesbrough in 2004-05 when facing them for Egaleo in the UEFA Cup.

In the 2008-09 season Skopelitis transferred back to Anorthosis, and in the same year played with them in the UEFA Champions League group stage, and was made captain.
